Nice picture. What did you use for the center of your torid?

Thanks for your prompt response. How do you join the ends of your toroid? I
put two slits down the sides of one end and compressed it just enough to
slide about one inch of it inside the other end. I then took aluminum duct
tape and sealed this joint as smoothly as I could. Someone else told me to
"sew" the ends together with small gauge copper wire but this looks like it
would be incredibly difficult to line up and keep in line while sewing,
especially if attempted alone by some sucker who is legally blind! {:-) Any
advice is welcome. Anyone else care to tell how they connect the ends of
their toroids?
